Roap is a text file processor. It scans a text file, extracts regions that match specified patterns, and processes these regions sequentially using specifed executables. Each executable reads the region as stdin, and their combined stdouts are written as the stdout of Roap. Patterns and executables are specified using XML.
reversible hexdump is a hexdump/hex2bin-toolkit that dumps to a special readable and reversible hexadecimal byte-dump, where you can not only change bytes, but also insert or delete bytes. It has a flush-switch, where it will output hexbytes for each single char it reads. This is especially useful (imho) for watching output from slow devices (e.g., serial devices like mice). The hex2bin-utility (the reverse-hexdump) not only accepts hexbytes for input, but also double-quoted strings with most of the escape-chars known from C and makes good attempts at undumping even hexdumps with repetition-lines (a "*" on its own line). It's written in ANSI C.
These are the demo programs that accompany O'Reilly's "PNG: The Definitive Guide." rpng is a simple file viewer with the ability to set a background color when displaying transparent PNGs. rpng2 is a progressive PNG viewer, designed to work like a web browser (though it contains no network code); it can generate a background image when displaying transparent PNGs. wpng is a simple converter from NetPBM to PNG format; in most respects it is much more limited than pnmtopng, but it supports interactive entry of PNG text annotations and will generate noninterlaced PNGs on the fly (rather than buffering the entire image first like pnmtopng). The viewers include simple front ends for both X and Win32; the converter is a command-line app that compiles on Unix, Windows, and probably other platforms.
rsync-bc (rsync backup client) is a stripped-down version of rsync. The idea behind rsync-bc is to provide a simple client that only supports sending data. Receiving, local file transfers, and daemon/server modes have been disabled. No destructive file operation functions will be present in a binary.
rtf2latex2e is an utility to convert RTF files from popular word processors to the LaTeX2e format for those who value quality typesetting. rtf2latex2e uses the RTF reader package by Paul DuBois to parse the RTF code and generates an appropriate LaTeX file. The main features of rtf2latex2e are: detects text style: bold, italic, color, big, small,... reads embedded figures: PICT, WMF, PNG, JPEG,... reads tables: simple to semi- complex equations: reads out Equation Editor equations (courtesy Steve Swanson, http://www.mackichan.com) symbols: converts most greek and math symbols reads footnotes (not in tables yet), and converts hypertext links using the hyperref package.
